Yes, late in the game, I know. I’ve seen these cards advertised on Flickr for the longest but have never actually seen one in person. I was at a great gathering tonight and got a few of these calling cards from some great people I met and was very impressed by the quality of printing and paper stock. Nice hefty stock with a yum satin finish. These cards are done by a company called Moo and work seamlessly with your Flickr account. Order in batches of 100 and recieve cards with images from your own Flickr stream, cropped however you like to fit these skinny-mini calling cards. (You can order 100 cards each with a different image on them… or 100 cards with just one image. Sweet!) The other side can be personalized with up to six lines of text. See what others have done with their Moo cards. I already ordered a set. This could get addicting.
Moo cards found on Flickr: RedHotJezebel's cards. Blancucha's fabulous illustrated cards. Moo calling cards, $19.99 for 100 cards.
Holly posted about Martha Stewart’s new magazine, Blueprint, which is aimed at 30-something women. Judging from the teaser site, it’s targeting the readership of Lucky, Domino and Real Simple. Gotta love that. And what’s more, you can sign up to recieve the free premiere issue of Blueprint. HOT!
Orisinal is easily the best collection of online flash games to pass idle minutes away. (And so nice to look at!) So many more games have been added since I have been there last. Orisinal definitely got me through many an hour in college. My favorites are the games involving the frogs and this raccoon game. Bonus: Ferry’s Cafepress store!
Etsy is a new community that fosters entrepreneurship among people in the crafting, printmaking and art communities. It offers a marketplace for sellers to sell their handmade items to interested parties. Think of it like eBay, but for non-commercial goods. Love the color selection tools!
